Winemaker's Notes

Wine Spectator: This delicious blend of five white wine grapes (Chardonnay, Sémillon, Sauvignon Blanc, Viognier, and Muscat) is one of the best of its type from California. It’s a complex wine, with an array of ripe, concentrated flavors--pear, honey, fig, vanilla, peach and nectarine, finishing with lots of character and a dash of spice. Delicious.

    (From 2008 Vintage) Made by Caymus, one of the best wine producers in all the Napa Valley, Conundrum is one of the most interesting wines I've had in a long time. Aromas of flowers, sweet fruit, and spice waft up and lure you into the wine. It starts off fruity with flavors of peaches, apricots, lemon and other citrus fruits, and continues in a seamless line until the finish. The finish is not a fruity as the rest of the wine and has flavors of orange peel and mineral in an off-dry style. No one knows what's in it and that's the conundrum, but who really cares? It tastes great and is perfect for the summer.
